Vitamin C is the monarch of anti-aging vitamins and is vital for mature skin.
Vitamin C provides potent antioxidant protection, shielding skin from damaging free radicals. That’s those annoying rogue molecules that promote premature aging.
The most common forms of damage are environmental factors that we can’t get away from - sun damage, pollution and oxygen.
Did you know that smoking also depletes your skin’s Vitamin C? Yip, all the more reason to quit and keep your skin looking younger for longer.
Here are some of the Benefits:
• Reduces the appearance of dark spots and other types of sun damage
• Boosts healthy collagen production (firmer skin)
• Reduces inflammation and irritation, both of which cause a cascade of damage
• Promotes collagen boosting and natural radiance and clarity
• Fades post-breakout red marks by improving skin’s natural healing response
• Increases the effectiveness of your sunscreens and boosts your skins defence against UV exposure.
The Vitamin C Royalty – Ascorbic Acid
Ascorbic acid, also known as L-ascorbic acid, has the most research of any form of vitamin C when it comes to benefits for skin. It is also the most commonly used Vitamin C in well-formulated skincare products.
Ascorbic acid is also a powerhouse when mixed with other antioxidants, or when used alone in higher concentrations.
Great News! Vitamin C creams are safe to combine with all other skin care products. They work synergistically with other antioxidants, including Vitamin A in the form of Retinol.
For a super powerful anti-aging punch, mix vitamin C and E together.
You’ll be rewarded with a healthy, glowing skin.
Remember to purchase a serum that contains at least 20% Vitamin C, at least 5% Hyaluronic acid, which retains moisture and Ascorbic acid which boosts collagen production.
Read your labels, Beauties!
Remember when you buy a serum with vitamin C, you have to be careful that its contents come as little in contact with the air as possible because the product’s potency can easily be affected negatively.
That means you have to keep the bottle always closed ,and with little contact to the sun. A less transparent bottle is always better for protection.
We also want the product to be as natural as possible. A serum that is free of toxic Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Dyes, Silicone, Phthalates, Petrochemicals, Aromas and GMO’s with no colorants and no optical diffusers.
